Rossana was very accommodating and gave lots of useful information relating to restaurants and places to visit in the area. We thoroughly enjoyed our week in Stresa and it was great to stay in an apartment so close to all the local amenities. Stresa is a great base to explore Lake Maggiore.

The apartment is clean, large, modern and tastefully decorated. The owner had setup a baby cot for our toddler as requested and was very helpful and made us feel welcome. The location is perfect with easy walks to all that is there to see in Stresa and access to transportation to explore the region. I highly recommend this apartment if you are planning to visit this area.

The owners were on hand 24/7 to answer anything we asked or needed and picked us up from the bus transfer on our arrival.It was a very safe secure apartment and area of the town. An oven,toaster,kettle and beach mats would have been an extra perfect fit for us but we knew this before arrival but it didn't hinder or cause us any inconvenience or trouble. I highly recommend this apartment if you are staying in Stresa.
